Hot home helpers under $100: Easy, affordable organization solutions F
eel like there’s never enough room in your home to store everything? Chances are you
don’t need more square footage, you just need to get organized. “Luckily, getting organized
doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive,” says Danny Lipford, home improvement expert and host of “Today’s Homeowner.” “The key is to find products that marry innovation and practicality to help make home organization easy.”
While overhauling your whole home may seem intimidating, start with the three rooms that tend to be the culprits of chaos —the
kitchen, bathroom and garage. Check out these hot home helpers that will soon make your spaces more organized and enjoyable, all at an affordable price. In the kitchen Savvy storage When it’s time to put away
leftovers, do you struggle to find matching lids and bowls? Or do your plastic storage containers seem to take over your entire storage space? Update your mismatched wares with Smart Spin Storage Containers. They offer three different storage sizes and a holder keeps all the storage containers and universal-sized

lids organized in less than one square foot ($20). Use unused space
Most bathrooms are equipped with accessories to keep towels neat and at your fingertips, so why not use the same organiza- tion tools in the kitchen? For less than $25, you can add a towel bar, towel ring or robe hook, such as the Sage or Reed collections at Bed Bath & Beyond, on the side of a cabinet or an island to keep dish towels handy (and off the floor), while adding a stylish look to the kitchen.
In the bathroom Shower and storage Space and storage are key concerns in bathroom design; luckily, you can create up to 5 1/2 additional inches of elbow room in the shower, while also add- ing extra hanging space for daily essentials with the new Double Curved Shower Rod from Moen ($59.99). Double Curved Shower Rods, available at Bed Bath & Beyond, also offer visual appeal with a separate rod for the decora- tive shower curtain—or provide easily accessible space to hang your towels.
Simple space solution No matter how organized your bathroom, it’s always tough to find a place for the many daily necessi- ties that we want at our fingertips. Now, you can easily keep these items within arm’s reach – yet off the vanity – with new Towel Bar Hooks and Shower Rod Hooks from Moen ($10). These inge- nious, S-shaped hooks snap right onto your current towel bar or shower rod to offer convenient

access for a variety of items, such as clothing, jewelry, towels, travel bags and more.
In the garage Up and out When look- ing for more storage space in the garage, don’t forget to look up. Often overlooked, the overhead area is ideal to suspend a variety of larger items, such as bikes, that take up coveted floor space. For only a few dollars, you can purchase large plastic-coated hooks that easily screw into the ceiling joist and allow you to hang the bicycle upside down by the tires. Or try a bike hoist ($39) that also suspends the bike from the ceiling - but uses a pulley to make lifting the bike easier.
Balls, bats and shovels, oh my Unfortunately, most items stored in the garage are large and irregularly shaped, making it difficult to neatly store them on shelves. Specialized organization systems for sporting goods and
lawn equipment are available to confine anything from bats and balls to shovels and rakes. The Ra- corPro X-Rack Sports Equipment Organizer ($79.99) sets up quickly and easily and the basket design will entice anyone to toss their items in. Or, try the Funnel Fits Long Handle Tool Storage System ($26) that snaps garden tools like shovels, rakes and brooms onto the wall and out of the way. With a few innovative, practi- cal and affordable products, your home will be more organized in no time. For more information about Moen products, visit www. moen.com
